Problems and Solutions


Some people view every challenge, every hardship that they or anyone else encounters as a problem that "someone" preferably not them should solve and that someone else should pay for.

Perhaps all that is required is time and effort for people to overcome challenges on their own.

True eventually we pass on and our troubles are gone.

Solving someone else's problem is generally never a good idea no matter who is paying.  Problems are only problems if you avoid dealing with them.  Otherwise, they are merely life's lessons that help us learn and grow as individuals.

I try to solve many of my own problems, however some of my psychiatric ones do require the intervention of a psychiatrist for medications and a therapist. If these were not available to me I would die by my own hand.

I often ignore the advice of others and solve it the hard way.

I am not surprised by that

Dean - You're definitely a rebel!  I imagine you would have been that guy volunteering to fly the first plane.

That's what money was invented for.

Of course you must try first, but then if you fail, there are alternatives. Contrary to what I see here, people do encounter problems in their lives that there are no ways available to them to solve by themselves, so because there are experts who can be consulted for damn near everything, it would be a lot better to get good qualified advice and guidance rather than become frustrated or even ill from being unsuccessful in solving them yourself.

I was not thinking about health (physical or mental) problems when I posted this more the challenges of life and personal development, but I get your point.

Thanks for the feedback

Actually I wasn't thinking about health problems, but more about legal and moral ones, the kind that would fill the many volumes of the Encyclopedia Britannica if they were recorded. The Hatfields and McCoys had their method of dealing with them, but there are better ways. Just ask Sarah Reasoner Grey.
